Cadors. 30-Nov-1999 On landing at Fort Hope from Nakina in windy conditions, the aircraft bounced three times. After shutting down, the pilot inspected the nose landing gear, suspecting a flat tire. The tire condition was normal and no other damage was visible. The next flight was to Geraldton, where maintenance performed a more detailed inspection and discovered buckled components inside the aircraft above the nose gear. The company will provide further information as the aircraft is repaired. One (1) S.O.B. -- no injuries.
